- About EPEAT
In response to questions from a number of participating manufacturers about recycling requirements across geographies and product categories, GEC staff have developed a brief document discussing the EPEAT system’s End of Life environmental performance requirements. The document briefly covers the currently approved standards for use with IE and TV registrations, and may clarify what steps are needed to register in new countries. Please review the document, which is permanently available on our Recycling Resources page, and ask your colleagues to do the same.
